Brian Griffin presents the mythic tale of an aerial expedition across Iceland’s epic landscape in search of The Water People.

‘The thing about Iceland is that it’s so powerful and distinctive that it breaks away from the cliche of landscape,’ says Griffin. ‘It’s so elemental, so exaggerated. You feel like you’re at the creation of the Earth. I seem to gravitate towards the really dynamic part of Iceland - the steam and the fire and the waterfalls. But, ultimately, I was trying to photograph it as a state of mind, as a way of externalising my own feelings, rather than a landscape in itself – like self-portraiture.’
